Lennon wrote "Instant Karma!" in less than an hour. He called up George Harrison, hoping to quickly put the song to tape that same evening. Harrison then contacted Spector. John phoned me up one morning in January and said, 'I've written this tune and I'm going to record it tonight and have it pressed up and out tomorrow – that's the whole point: 'Instant Karma,' you know,'" Harrison later remembered. So I was in. I said, 'Okay, I'll see you in town. Spector would end up working with all of the Beatles on various projects, except for McCartney, who later stripped down Let It Be for a 2003 album. Lennon, meanwhile, performed "Instant Karma!" during a joint appearance with Ono on England's Top of the Pops on Feb. 11, 1970. The song was also part of Lennon's last full-length concert appearance, a two-show stop on Aug. 20, 1972, at Madison Square Garden.
